I called on 4/29/15 to make a reservation. I live in town/St. Pete, and SPECIFICALLY asked (since I hadn't stayed there before) that my debit card would not be run until check in. He said that no, it wouldn't. A flat out lie. On Saturday May 2nd, a $100 charge was put though on my debit card! With my rent... More

So let's start with the positive, it is a good location, quiet and relatively clean. We saw the reviews on line and thought would take a chance at a very different sort of place and made a reservation and were told, "we don't have confirmation #'s, it is just me and my wife running it." When we arrived we were... More

I feel the location is actually better than on the gulf. Most blvd locations are still a long walk from the water plus you have the noise. Sea Jay is a not much longer walk to water, yet a much better view over the canal and grounds, much quieter, and easy walking in the surrounding area. The owners make you... More

My husband and I stayed in Sea Jay Motel for 10 nights in February 2015. The place is really beautiful, short walk (2 min) to the amazing beach and just a short drive to Dunedin and Sarasota. The owners of the Motel are very friendly and easily appproachable. We had lovely holidays in Sea Jay Motel. Ewa & Wojtek

I was almost reluctant to post a review because I didn't want this place to become overloaded with tourists! But I feel it's my duty to just say that this place is fantastic. It was so cute and quirky. Great location, very nice owners. I had a great time for such a reasonable price. Will surely be staying here when... More
